5G’s characteristics sound promising for first responders, but what is the best path for public safety to take as it tries to get there? Join S&T Panelist Cuong Luu to learn how the evolution from 4G to 5G will differ significantly from previous generational transitions in the wireless industry, and what that will mean to public safety agencies in terms of short-term buying decisions and long-term strategies. This panel will be held in the Expo Theatre: IWCE Public Safety Summit, on May 7, from 2:35-3:10 p.m. at the Colorado Convention Center.
DHS S&T’s Cuong Luu, along with Nada Golmie of National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), John Contestabile of Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, and Ed Chow of NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, will discuss “How Do I Get Ready for 5G?” They will tackle such questions as whether subscribing to a carrier 5G service makes the most sense, or are there circumstances in which a private system over Citizens Band Radio Service or other spectrum would be a better choice? What steps can local governments take to ensure that their communities have the communications foundation needed to support 5G deployment?
Over 1,500 telecom professionals will be attending Big 5G over two days. The event will include multiple keynote sessions delivered by renowned service and solution provider representatives. For more information, visit: https://tmt.knect365.com/big-5g-event/iwce-at-big-5g.
